ETH / ETC (Ethereum / Ethereum Classic) Mining Tutorial

  1. ETH mining on F2Pool is registration-free and adopts the PPS+ capital preservation distribution mode;
  2. See the Help page at https://www.f2pool.com/help for PPS rate, F2Pool mining address, 24-hour theoretical income and more information.
  3. Account is settled automatically from GMT 8:00 am . Payment is made to the specified address within 8 hours after the settlement. Payment is made once per day. Payment threshold is 0.1ETH/ETC.
  4. No real-time incomes would arrive at the address of a remittee who has just started mining until “share accepted” is shown in the mining software.
  5. Mining pool delay as seen in the mining software is normally smaller than 2000 ms, or should be smaller than 500 ms under good networking condition. Please inspect your networking if it exceeds this figure.
  6. Mining profit and all workers’ hashrate can be viewed by filling out your wallet address in search bar right above of F2Pool official website and clicking “Go”.
